Mechatronics is a multidisciplinary field of science that includes a combination of mechanical engineering, electronics, computer engineering, telecommunications engineering, systems engineering and control engineering. As technology advances, the subfields of engineering multiply and adapt. Mechatronics’ aim is a design process that unifies these subfields. Originally, mechatronics just included the combination of mechanics and electronics, therefore the word is a combination of mechanics and electronics; however, as technical systems have become more and more complex the definition has been broadened to include more technical areas.

Faster, better, cost effective is the aim of the game for machine builders.
Modern production equipment consists of mechatronic modules that are integrated according to a control architecture. The most known architectures involve hierarchy, polyarchy, heterarchy, and hybrid systems. The methods for achieving a technical effect are described by control algorithms, which might or might not utilize formal methods in their design. Examples of these are, automotive subsystems such as anti-lock braking systems and spin-assist, and everyday equipment such as autofocus cameras, vending machines, printers or Robotic Handling systems.
The mechatronic design process involves a parallel approach where Mechanical, Electrical and control Systems are simultaneously designed and are fit end form for the application. This results in a machine which is cost effective and multi-functional.
